Item Description: Harry Johnson, New York, 1876. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. first edition. New York: Harry Johnson, 1876. Very Good. 19.0" x 24.0". Original brown cloth folio in nice condition. Original cloth folder (some splits) including all but one of the original draw strings. Title on cloth in gilt with a facsimile signature of Forbes also in gilt to the front board. There are forty copper etched prints loosely placed between both boards and held together with ties. The pastedown to the front board is a full page "Descriptive Index." The index describes each of the prints. There are a couple of small (less an 1/3 inch) edge tears but no serious wear on any of the plates. Three or four of the plates (scattered randomly through the book) look a little scorched to me, some darkening to the image. Random foxing here and there, but generally very attractive. There is what looks like a water stain on the back of the cloth folder, but not affecting the contents. Tissue guards throughout (probably added later). This set came from an estate in Los Angeles and looks to have been sitting undistured for a very long time. The images really are wonderful, a great document of the Civil War.

Item Description: New York: Harry Johnson, 1876., 1876. Forty plates. Large folio. Original publisher's cloth, gilt. Front board present, gilt worn away; rear board lacking. Cover somewhat dampsoiled and worn. Light foxing and soiling, heavier to first plate, though mostly confined to margins elsewhere. A few plates with small marginal tears or chips. Good. Edwin Forbes was one of the most notable illustrators of the American Civil War. From 1862 on he was a correspondent for HARPER'S WEEKLY, producing illustrations to accompany war news. During most of this period he accompanied the Army of the Potomac on its campaigns in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Although Forbes portrays battle scenes, he was much more interested in depicting the everyday life of the private soldier in camp and on the march. Typically his scenes include such topics as "Washing Day," the camp cook, vendors of supplies to soldiers, picket duty, and other incidents of camp life. A number of other illustrations show life on the march, fording streams, the supply train, and the like. All of the plates are etchings, evidently executed by Forbes himself from his original drawings (which were mainly pen and ink wash). The forty plates contain fifty-nine scenes, since some plates have two or three scenes, and one has five. A table of contents appears on the inside of the front board, where each plate has a more lengthy textual gloss as well. The front board proclaims the publication was sold "to subscribers only." It divides the plates into ten parts, so it would seem the publication was issued over a period of time, although all plates are dated 1876. A major graphic record of the Civil War, by one of its most notable recorders. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 49017
